FORMULA

T(i,j) is given in cases:

Case 1:  row 0

  T(0,0)=0, T(1,0)=3, and for m>=1,

  T(4m-2,0)=2m, T(4m-1,0)=2m+1, T(4m,0)=2m,

  T(4m+1,0)=2m+1.

Case 2:  row 1

  T(0,1)=3, T(1,1)=2, and for m>=2,

  T(4m-2,1)=2m-1, T(4m-1,1)=2m, T(4m,1)=2m+1,

  T(4m+1,1)=2m+2.

Case 3:  columns 1 and 2

  (column 1) = (row 1); (column 2 = row 2).

Case 4:  For i>=2 and j>=2,

   T(i,j)=1+min{T(i-2,j-1),T(i-1,j-2)}.

Cases 1-4 determine T in the 1st quadrant; all

other T(i,j) are easily obtained by symmetry.

EXAMPLE

T(i,j) for -2<=i<=2 and -2<=j<=2:

4 1 2 1 4=T(2,2)

1 2 3 2 1=T(2,1)

2 3 0 3 2=T(2,0)

1 2 3 2 1=T(2,-1)

4 1 2 1 4=T(2,-2)

Corner of the array, T(i,j) for i>=0, k>=0:

0 3 2 3 2 4 5...

3 2 1 2 3 4 3...

2 1 4 3 2 3 4...

3 2 3 2 3 4 2...
